ABOUT: Experienced musician (25+ years) and writer (15+ years) Chantelle Constable wants to help you craft a stunning original song for your next project!

GENRES: folk, ballad, singer-songwriter, adult contemporary
OTHER INFLUENCES: classical crossover, jazz, showtunes, symphonic metal, dark cabaret
MOODS: Intimate/Confessional <---------> Epic/Symbolic
TOPICS: Anything you like! Though we may or may not collaborate on notes and melodies, I believe that part of the music of a song is contained within the lyrics. The metre informing the time signature. The overtones of a certain vowel on a sustained note. The color of the vocabulary - which is going to be very different in a modern sacred piece vs a symphonic metal piece, for example. Once I have the "linguistic genre" of your piece in my mind's ear, we can fill in that outline with any subject matter you desire.
